WELCOME

The Police Holy Name Society of Suffolk County was formed for Catholic Police Officers, and all other Law Enforcement Officers, employed by or retired from law enforcement agencies within Suffolk County. We conduct monthly meetings and other events throughout the year. Although attendance is not mandatory, participation is heartily encouraged. We provide assistance to those in need and we offer scholarships to dependents of active and lifetime members. We provide scholarships for Catholic grade school and high school, as well as to accredited public and/or private college, and Catholic universities or colleges. Come Join Us and Be Proud of Your Catholic Faith! We're more than a fraternal organization † Pray to End Abortion, Choose Life! The Society is now accepting membership applications from other Christian faiths.
